Add Laser Deposition Capability to Virtually Any CNC Machine Tool

The LENS Print Engine provides Optomec industry proven metal 3D Printing technology in a modular form and makes it available for integration with other metal working platforms such as mills, lathes, robots, custom gantries, or table systems. Now metal deposition and machining can be performed in the same system allowing you to leverage capital assets and accelerate implementation of additive technology through an HMI already familiar to your machinists.

The modular LENS Print Engine component capabilities include

  • Optomec LENS deposition head with 4-tip print nozzle
  • Proprietary SteadyFlow™ powder feeders
  • SmartAM™ closed loop melt pool control
  • Tool path generation software
  • Material Starter Recipes
  • Fiber laser power up to 2 kW

Combined with a CNC machine tool, the LENS Print Engine simplifies metal fabrication applications such as net shape rapid prototyping, hybrid manufacturing, full production, in-situ repair, manufacturing rework, application of wear or corrosion coatings, and more.
